Sample In-Class Midterm Exam 1
Spring 2004
Exam Date: Wednesday, 11 February, 2004
Instructions. There are 4 versions: A-D, E-K, L-Q, R-Z. Choose the version based upon
The exam is in class, 50 minutes. A sample exam is supplied separately. Not allowed on
the in-class exam: calculators, computers, notes and books.

3. (Linear Equations) Solve the linear equation 2xy ′(x) + 7y(x) = 3x, y(1) = 4.
Expected details include the integrating factor method and all integration steps, by
hand.
4. (Logistic DE) Solve the logistic problem P ′ = (2 − 3P )P , P (0) = 100. Graph
typical solution curves, including the equilibrium solutions. In the graphic, label the
spout and funnel structures and mark them as stable or unstable.
5. (Velocity and Acceleration)
(a) Solve 5v ′ = −100 − 50v, v(0) = 50.
(b) Solve y ′ = v(t), y(0) = 10, where v(t) is the answer from (a).
(c) Find the limiting velocity v∞ = limt→∞ v(t).
Reference: This is a special case of the kinematics problem my ′′ = −mg − ky ′ ,
y(0) = 0, y ′ (0) = v0 .
